officer-involved shooting just a short distance from this entrance about half a mile from this entrance between this area, saratoga avenue and winchester boulevard. that involved san jose police. sources tell us a suspect pulled a gun on an officer who was part of a specialized unit, not a patrol unit. one person was shot and killed. no officers were hurt. the chp this afternoon shut down both lanes of southbound highway 85 and that has created a lot of headaches for motorists tonight. it is possible that this section of highway 85 is going to remain closed for hours. just a few minutes ago the san jose crime scene van just pulled on to the highway to begin this investigation, but again, chp officers tell me that it is possible that the -- that this section of the highway, starting at saratoga avenue southbound on highway 85 could be closed for

the amount of student loan debt i have, i'm embarrassed to even say. we just decided we didn't want debt any longer. ♪ i didn't realize how easy investing could be. i'm picking companies that i believe in. ♪ i think sofi money is amazing. ♪ thank you sofi. sofi thank you, we love you. ♪ an apology from a facebook tonight after an anonymous blog post complaining about a racist culture at the social media giant.
the post was written by a group of people who claim to be former and present facebook employees. in the statement facebook says no one at facebook or anywhere should have to put up with this behavior. we are sorry and it goes against everything that we stand for at the company and black latino and female and asian employees in particular. frightening moments at a playoff football game in stockton. a shooting scare during the final minutes of the game sent a wave of panic through the stadium at edison high. >> fans scattering in different directions and an announcer is also heard asking people to stay calm. at first, police say they didn't find any evidence of a shooting and later they found seven shell casings and bullet holes in a nearby car. ice skating it officially back in the east bay. if you don't believe me, ask rob mayeda. the walnut holiday rink opened. paulina was on hand to break the

just yet and 59 just yet and highs in the low 50s and dublin, 72 and look at the high. almost 80 degrees into the tri-valley and more of the hazy skies and 60 right now and eventually some patchy fog setting up and a spare the air day tomorrow. here's the issue. high pressure builds and it acts like a lid and that smoke starts to build up and now we have some unhealthy air quality around the santa clara valley for tomorrow. >> right now the wind is technically onshore and it's bringing up low clouds south of the golden gate bridge and that will spill into the bay area. the futurecast and essentially all of the inner bay looking at fog and some of that could get into san jose for the morning and then we'll see clearing skies and more hazy sunshine as we head through sunday afternoon and very similar to what we saw today. mostly in the 40s inland where you're not in the fog you'll have chilly temperatures and
closer to 50 around for morning temperatures and highs tomorrow close to 70 in san jose and mid-70s in morgan hill, and it will be the warmest temperatures around the bay area with mid to upper 70s in oakland and upper 60s around san mateo and mid-60s for tomorrow and north bay temperatures in the low to mid-70s for your sunday afternoon. one thing to watch tomorrow night will be winds on the hill tops turning offshore and not strong enough for a red flag warning, but it's going to dry things out in the higher elevation and something we'll watch out for heading into monday morning and the extended model run through the next few days brings in at least a chance of seeing some showers. not for monday, tuesday or wednesday, but notice how the ridge of high pressure weakens just enough that by late thursday and friday right here is the narrow window of opportunity probably north of san francisco into early friday, could see a chance of seeing a
few showers and just like that heading into next weekend, the high pressure is making a comeback. the seven-day forecast and the short-term concern for the fog for the morning and air quality issue especially in the south bay to wrap up the weekend and a bit of a warming trend inland, monday and tuesday andwell hope the thursday to friday rain chance gets better as it gets closer and right now that looks to be the only chance of rain in the bay area for the next seven days coming up early on friday. >> we'll wait and see how that plays out. >> in the meantime, we can expect it around rob mayeda. >> gorgeous. thank you. coming up, people who live in this east bay city tend to stress less. we'll tell you what it is and how the other bay area cities stack up.
